I think this stems from when I was a kid and on Saturday mornings we woke up there was a GIANT LIST (okay maybe 6 things) of chores that we had to complete before we could do anything fun. Now that I am a Mom myself I don't totally disagree with this but it was not something that I said Yipppie to each Saturday morning.
I prefer goals. I think goals and daily to do lists are two totally different things. To me a goal is something that I will strive to achieve and I am more likely to complete and accomplish. Its less pressure than a to do list in my opinion.
A few weekends ago Ian and I started discussing weekly goals and I thought it would be a great idea to actually write them down and place them on our fridge. That way it would not only be a good reminder but it would help keep us both accountable. So far so good!!
My weekly goals:
- Get ready for trip. I tend to do everything last minute and since we will be gone for an entire week I have to get organized and packing!
- Run 4-5 miles Monday-Friday. I am doing a mud run in a few weeks and really need to step up my game. BIG time.
- Make yummy/more thoughtful dinners. I tend to do everything on a bed of lettuce. Let me explain...I will make chicken..on a bed of lettuce. Shrimp..on a bed of lettuce. Veggie stir fry..on a bed of lettuce. You get it. Last weekend Ian had a mini meltdown and said, "NO more salads!" Geeesh okay Mr. Hungry Man got it. Noted.
- Exercise daily.
- Low stress. I asked him what that meant and he just looked at me..Ya I can be a little bit much sometimes I am aware of this.
- Go to bed before 9:30.
Does anyone else write down their weekly goals or are you a daily to do list kinda person? I would love to know!
